Various Voices Summary

Various Voices: Prose, Poetry, Politics 1948-2005 by Harold Pinter

Revised and updated to include Harold Pinter's most recent political writing, prose and poetry. Praise for the 1948-1998 edition of Various Voices: 'Various Voices, the first collection of Pinter's prose and poems to span his whole career, is a wonderful book that not only emphasises the versatility of his genius but also gives a portrait of the compassionate individual behind the myth of the difficult author.' Times Educational Supplement' Obligatory reading for anyone who values and enjoys original and intelligent writing.' Sunday Telegraph 'His concern for language and his moral force coalesce and give some of his political writing a rare power . . . It is a journey of heart, mind and spirit.' Financial Times 'Various Voices is an engrossing collection of prose and verse and should be obligatory reading for anyone who values and enjoys original and intelligent writing . . . the directly political pieces are written with the clarity and anger of a latter-day Swift.' Sunday Telegraph 'A taut polemic of which Orwell would have been proud.' Observer 'His spare, honed prose, prose fiction and poetry are beautiful.' Mail on Sunday
